Had a bottle at Jojo, one of Manhattan's finest dining establishments, where it cost $32 and where they make sure to select good wines to go with the superb cuisine. I would say $12 for a bottle of this is a bargain. I may have been influenced by th...

I've had this in my possession for awhile now and don't know a whole lot about wine; is there anything special about this wine? Read More
New Year’s Eve is fast approaching, and sparkling wines are on our minds. I love Champagne and recommend that people think of it more as a wine and pair it with dinner instead of just aperitifs and pre-meal toasts. Perhaps owing to its historic association with quality, a good Champagne can approach a hundred dollars a bottle, and really good ju... Read More
January 27th saw the arrival of the Benvenuto Brunello road show, from The Fortezza in Montalcino, to Gotham Hall in Manhattan. The purpose of the event was to showcase (and welcome) the 2009 vintage of Brunello Di Montalcino, being as it was, the January five years after the harvest year.Approximately thirty producers were present to pour the w...

With rose season in full swing I’m a little surprised at the paucity of samples i’ve received so far this year. In order to put together a nice selection of wines for this article i went shopping last week here locally. Locally being about an hour north of Manhattan NY. After speaking with my local retailers i see one reason for the paucity. Ros... Read More
We’re back with another cellar of the month. Perhaps unwittingly I’ve taken an editorial turn over the past few months. In addition to writing about wines and wine regions, I’m finding it increasingly interesting reading about the people that make this industry work. Now that of course means winemakers, sommeliers, and writers, but the story is ... Read More
As many of you might know I am half Italian, with family that comes from the province of Trentino in northern Italy. It’s where the seeds for my love for wine were originally planted, and there are plenty of fabulous wines produced there. Though little of it finds it’s way to our shores. That is slowly changing but the truth is there is only so ... Read More
Hi everyone. My wife Sandra and I have been into wine for the past few years and that's led to a few trips to Napa Valley and related areas in 2012 and 2013. We enjoy all wines but reds are our favorites. We hosted our first wine tasting party last night and it was a fun event - sixteen wine lovers trying different wines in a blind tasting. ... Read More
Blind tasting. It’s the great equalizer, and while many people doth protest too much about the results, and often their results when undergoing such an exercise, the results tend to be irrefutable.Yes it’s easy to argue that less expensive wines may win because they are more approachable, ready on release while the big boys always need time but ...

I summon you all to try and get your hands on some '11 Willi Schaefer German Riesling, be it Kabinett, Spatlese, Auslese, etc. The simple Kabinett I had yesterday was a very nice wine, and great for its level. Can't wait to try more. Luckily, I have a Spatlese #10 lined up to try next. Read More
I noticed that OutThere purchased seven bottles of a particular wine at $14 and it occurred to me that it was a $100 purchase, and enough to last about a week. So I got curious, and mentioned in the thread that it would be interesting to know how much per week people spent. Well, Emark has better records and more time on his hands than I do, a... Read More
